New e-book spills the secrets for growing hotel occupancy!
The "How to Digitally Grow Your Hotel Occupancy" downloadable e-book takes you step-by-step through the fastest, most powerful ways to use digital platforms for business growth. It's packed with insider hints for hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs.
The workbook was developed by Karen Parkin, who led the globalization of the Marriott International hotel site, and has taken independent guesthouses to 90%+ occupancy. She says "We want to share the secrets of success with hospitality business owners who normally can't afford the time or fees to attend one of our corporate workshops. In just a hundred pages of explanation, examples and exercises, you will save time, save money, and grow your business, without having to be a geek."
There's a lot of surprisingly powerful stuff in this book. For example, it shows you how to dominate the screen space of a search engine results page. And it explains how to automatically turn anyone's link to your website in social media into a powerful free advertisement, complete with a photo and action button.
Her co-author is Godfrey Parkin, author of "Doing Business Digitally" and "Digital Marketing" and leader of Britefire's Startup Workshop. He says that most hospitality businesses are appallingly badly marketed, so it is not hard to beat competitors if you simply do the right things and do them well.
"We wanted to focus on only those things which most hotels get wrong, but which give you a huge sales boost if you do them right. We explain these concepts simply, and provide step-by-step instructions which even a newcomer to digital can follow. The book is available on Amazon. But for the next couple of weeks you can download it from Britefire.com for the price of a couple of cappuccinos!"
At last there is a streamlined guide which explains the concepts in language a hotelier can get excited about. It lays out the route to rapid business success in a series of simple exercises. This book was designed to become fundamental to your marketing thinking. It could forever change the way you do business.
